How To Make Buttermilk
Hi Everyone, I recently re-posted my first recipe and post on this blog, Gluten-Free Mocha Cake, with updated photos and it occurred to me that I should really have a dedicated recipe tutorial for How to Make Buttermilk.
I find Buttermilk improves the texture of baked recipes like cakes, cupcakes and muffins as well as pancakes and waffles, for example, these Strawberry Buttermilk Pancakes.
Isn’t it the worse when you are making a baking recipe or other recipe and it requires buttermilk, and you don’t have it?
Who wants to take the time to make a special trip to the grocery store to get buttermilk?
Some grocery stores don’t even carry buttermilk!
This tutorial is a quick fix if you find yourself in a bind like this – can you tell that I have in the past? lol.
